Now Kenny this is something that I imagine you don't see everyday. Nice capture.

Is it warming up yet?

Oddballs like this come along every couple of years. I have seen a starling, a carrion crow and a house sparrow. Blackbirds are a bit more frequent as at least once a year you will see a blackbird with at least one or two white feathers. I have also seen the reverse (melanism)that being a completely black pheasant. Yes it is slightly warmer - no frosts on a morning this week!

Hi, Kenny! Thank you for showing me the Starling pics, and this one is obviously uncommon. Good capture! Theolfa
